KUALA LUMPUR – A second possible piece from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was found on the French Indian Ocean island of La Reunion last Thursday, reported a news agency.
AFP reported the news on Sunday that the piece was found by Johnny Begue while he was out jogging by the sea shore.
According to the news agency, Begue was also the person who found the “flaperon”, a wing fragment from the missing plane, while cleaning a beach in July last year.
Begue said the piece was of the same lightweight “honeycomb” construction as the flaperon piece and about a metre in length, reported AFP.
The flaperon he found remains the only piece of debris identified with certainty as having come from the flight, said AFP.
The Beijing-bound flight MH370, a Boeing 777, with 239 passengers and crew on board went missing on the early morning of March 8, 2014, after departing from KL International Airport.
Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of the mysterious disappearance of the aircraft with a massive search operation carried out for the plane on the seafloor of the Southern Indian Ocean by Australian, Malaysian and Chinese authorities. – BERNAMA
